by newtown united. i met with them in my office in washington and then again last night in newtown. and i think that we are at a historic moment. >> how will we know? what will we know if it's different? at what point can citizens say it's taking too long or the nra is slow walking this stuff again? it seems to me every time we say it's going to be different also, that's another similarity. >> we had that same conversation after columbine, which i covered. we had that same conversation after aurora and all the other ones in between. same conversation. >> remember that the first gun assault law, assault weapons law took five years to pass. it was first proposed in 1989 after the stockton shooting and senators metzenbound and feinstein worked on it five years. i'm determined, i'm committed. but the president is absolutely right, that the american people have to stand up. i'll tell you what also is different. i've talked to a lot of these families and i am so impressed by their strength and courage and they say to me we want to be there. we want this work to go forward. >> cnn reported last
in the united states. our correspondent who was in japan for cnn for years and years now living in the united states covering newtown, listen to what she had to say about the comparison between those two places. >> i moved back to the u.s. this summer for the last five years, i was living in japan as cnn's tokyo correspondent. in that entire time, i never covered a shooting. there aren't any. this is my third mass shooting i've covered in just six months. i don't have the answer but i can compare japan and the u.s. in japan, there are almost no guns. the average person just can't get one. and i have to tell you, it's the safest place i've ever lived. >> and yet, we can talk about a place that you covered as a journalist, the an toyate killings in norway, 2011, summer camp. 77 people killed most youngsters and norway is a country where it is tough to get a gun. so you can't stop this completely. but people will say if you reduce the number of guns, you'll have fewer of them. here's the thing. this is a country where i can say whatever i want. i can worship any way i want and according to the w
united. we gather in such a moment of heart break for all of us here in newtown. we gather especially mindful of family and friends and neighbors among us who have lost loved ones by an act of unfathomable violence and destruction. we gather to grieve together to care for one another, to pray and embrace, to weep and to remember and to declare in our many voices that these darkest days of our community shall not be the final world heard from us. we will sigh in our sorrows, but we will also care for one another with our love and our compassion. in those early hours of this crisis it became clear to we clergy and faith leaders here in newtown that initial, an initial community response would be needed, that we would need to come together and so, we asked our first select woman and our superintendent if it might be possible for us clergy to invite the community to gather here at newtown high school to continue and to begin and to continue what will be for many a long journey through grief and loss. we are not here to ignore our differences or to diminish the core beliefs which define ou

more attention after the mass murderer in newtown, these kind of killings are certainly not rare. in the first week following sandy hook elementary, there were 100 deadly shootings across the united states, as "the huffington post" reported and the total number of shooting deaths runs higher. every week 600 people die from gun violence according to statistics from the brady campaign. will the new concern about sandy hook draw new attention to this old and enduring problem? progress is the way we talk about this debate. here's new york mayor cory booker on sunday. >> what frustrates me about this debate is it's a false debate, this is a false debate. this is a convenient tip to try to split our country more. most agree to stop the carnage going on in cities all across america. >> booker's premise is there is a consensus on gun regulations but the nra has artificially frozen that debate. other reformers say for a real breakthrough, supporters of gun regulation need a clear political enemy to organize against. nick confessore, i'm going to you, nra has money and members and we talke

in newtown, connecticut, we wanted to talk about what other countries are doing with their laws, for example, japan, which had just 11 gun-related murders in 2008. the united states at the same time had 12,000. christi christiane amanpour has been looking into this. governor scott was not willing to lay out anything that was reasonable or rational. >> it was remarkable that politicians like that were not willing to give you an answer after many, many attempts. and all you wanted was an answer. other countries have faced some similar incidents in 1996 in scotland, children the same ages as those in sandy hook were massacred. 16 children were killed, and today they are lighting candles for the children being buried. they have done more than that. the government took on what were already tough gun laws and strengthened them. they banned the easy access to handguns and put in a buy back scheme and backed that up with penalties and fines for any violations. the fact is, that worked. it didn't not work it worked. there is a cause and affect, and the crime, while it sort of stayed somewhat stable f
